Hello, would it be possible to make a plugin that reads and writes PlayStation and/or Game Cube memory cards?

Not a direct answer, but if you have the PS3 memory card reader, there is software available to use this with a PC and read PS1 memory cards this way. Doesn't help GameCube, mind you.

Pretty sure that the Gamecube memory card uses the same communication protocol as SD cards... not that that helps at all :)

I have seen adapters out there you can make/get.

Yeah, I made one of those too :) It doesn't work as a memory card though, you can't just use it to save games to it. It is compatible with a few games for transferring files, and then works well with homebrew.

abferm was enquiring if the Retrode could be made to read/write to the memory card. I mentioned the SD card communication protocol as I knew about the adapter. I have never seen anything about anyone making an adapter the other way (to plug a memory card into a USB SD card reader) though.
